Someone says something racist: maybe not a racist.

Someone keeps saying racist things: yeah, he's racist.

Someone defends the racist things he said, defends himself saying them, attempts to justify them and himself: undoubtedly a racist.

Comparing immigration to colonization and subjugation is above and beyond what can be excused as mere ignorance. That's not something that someone just innocently says; that is a belief.

And, as madhair notes, this isn't an isolated incident. JonTron has said plenty of suspect things on race and gender in the past, as well as aligned himself with figures such as Sargon and outlets such as Breitbart.

Looks like a goose, quacks like a goose, steps like a goose.

I'm not sure why this distinction really matters when "Jontron" makes it clearer who we're talking about.
